Ioke P released

Ioke is a language that is designed to be as expressive as possible. It is a dynamic language targeted at the Java Virtual Machine.
There also exists a version for the CLR. It's been designed from scratch to be a highly flexible general purpose language.
It is a prototype-based programming language that is inspired by Io, Smalltalk, Lisp and Ruby.
